Eric began working for the Flathead Lake Biological Station in 1999 as the Maintenance Worker. He was promoted in 2001 to Resident Caretaker. As his title suggests, Eric and his family are full-time residents at the Station. Eric's responsibilities range from maintaining and improving the buildings, grounds, vehicles, boats and mechanical equipment to the operation of the facility's water system and Wastewater Treatment Plant. He works to keep the Station's forest as close to its natural state as possible by thinning trees and brush and controlling nonendemic plant and animal species. Eric also provides FLBS and the surrounding community with fire protection as a volunteer fireman. In addition, he works with staff, faculty, and students to provide logistical and technical support for research projects. Personal interests include hunting, hiking, backpacking, whitewater canoeing, telemark and cross-country skiing, rock climbing, and his young son.
